The Hillgate serves traditional pub food and has a strong sense of identity with a following of loyal locals. Its quietly tucked away position, behind Notting Hill Gate, gives a false impression of this lively public house. Pavement seating is also available.

We spent £50 on food and drink here for 3 people - it's not cheap.

We ordered chips for the table to share which did not come out with the other food. When I mentioned this, the guy at the bar sighed and said he had forgot to put it through and asked me for £3.50. I asked how long the chips would be and he said 6 or 7 minutes. He forgot, and I can't believe he asked me to pay. For the...more

As far as pubs go there aren't a lot of things this place could do better in order to receive a 5 stars, bar perhaps being in an old listed space or have a mega selection of beer.

Lovely corner pub handily located a suitable hop away from the swarm of Portobello Road. The poor French chap behind the bar was a bit useless but once he was shown how to pull a pint, he did well, and it was a very well kept Wandle.

There are tables outside, and had the day I visited been more like May than November it would have been a very pleasant spot to spend an hour or too.more
